Commerzbank Arena Frankfurt

The new arena was to be built on the site of its great predecessor, the Frankfurt Waldstadion, which was part of German sport history. It was given a new strategic concept, in order to be multifunctional enough to host events of all kind, such as sports, concerts or business events. It has the largest steel-rope-membrane inner cover in the world (covered area 25,000m²), which is sealable in 15 minutes. It has seven floors, with the first row located just a few meters away from the pitch and with the advantage that no pillars obstruct the direct view. Team members of vision4venue were involved in the design process, project management, were responsible for execution, and were members of the internal board for stadium roof.
